Palin for president? (letter)

by Frank Bellet

News Weekly, September 27, 2008

As soon as the name Sarah Palin was announced as the vice-presidential nomination for the Republican ticket in the forthcoming American elections, the corrupt media in the United States (with some honourable exceptions) went into overdrive, immediately following their recovery from the shock.

Well aware of her abilities and her impeccable pro-life credentials, including knowingly nurturing a precious Down Syndrome baby to full term, these character-assassins needed no meeting of their angry minds - they knew what was required of them, as they started their vicious name-calling of this multi-talented lady.

However, here's a news flash - it backfired. It alerted the nation, in such a way that as many as 37.2 million people in the USA alone tuned in to hear what she had to say, not just 20 million as reported in the Australian media.

Her opponents, Barack Obama and Joe Biden, are both pro-abortion to full term. Biden claims to be a Catholic.

Sarah Palin has reinvigorated the Republicans and mortified the media, whose journalists in the USA are considered to be 12-to-one in favour of the Democrats.

As governor of Alaska, she has an approval rating of nearly 90 per cent in her home state, following her years of fighting corruption and being responsible for beating corrupt politicians of both parties and turfing out equally corrupt bureaucrats.

In Alaska she controls a US$11 billion dollar budget and 15,000 Alaska state employees. Not only would she make a great vice-president, but also a great president.
